After 13 days, the Central Park Hoodie is nearing completion. I have only one more sleeve to go. Then it's just picking up the hood and button band and seaming. :D
While finishing this project is dreadfully exciting, sewing the seams and (especially) the zipper is just going to be dreadful. Or at the very least, I'm dreading it.
I want this sweater to be worth it so bad!
I joined a group on Ravelry called 3 sweaters in 1 year or something. So basically I have to knit 3 sweaters which I think is totally do-able.
I know there are groups where people do a pair of socks a month or (like stephanie pearl mcphee who's sanity is to be questioned) even a sock a day, but I'm sticking with the 3 sweaters a year.
After all, I'm finished with the first sleeve and I'm not looking forward to knitting the exact same thing again.
Socks are not for me.
Oh, also? I totally decided to cast on for some socks.
Things I have to Knit (or finish knitting) Before I Buy Any More Yarn
1) Central Park Hoodie
2) Ravenclaw Scarf (this includes the fringe, unfortunately)
3) The sole mitten (at least the one, if I want to be extra good I'll knit both)
4) The Slytherin Sweater
5) The Empire Strikes Back Dress
I really don't know about that last one, but if I can accomplish all of those things then my stash will diminish some, which is good.
I checked out my stash the other day and, contrary to my belief, I have a lot of yarn.
I'm not even talking about just the crap yarn.
I have a lot of good yarn.
I don't know how I'm going to keep up with my plans.
I clearly expect myself to knit a lot faster than I do.
Sometimes I think I should start knitting continental style, but I know for a fact that I suck at it and I don't like suckage.
I really love those mittens. I really want to finish them,. :(
Oh also I joined a rav group for people knitting the smitten mitten garland. Which is totally in my queue and I really want for next christmas although I'm not sure I'm going to get them all done because 24 identical mittens is probably something invented for crazy people.
no pictures today.
